Divorce His - Divorce Hers


Published 1973


A two-part film, actually two concurrent stories, that reveals the dissolution of an 18-year marriage from two points of view.
The stories are set in Rome, where the wealthy Martin and Jane Reynolds (Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor) meet by chance after a two-year separation.
In the first of the two stories, Martin has returned to Rome on business, representing an African managerial firm. Martin remembers his marriage as a rather sado-masochistic union.
Part two examines the marriage from Jane's point of view, focusing more on the family life, on how the children have been scarred by the crumbling marriage.

43 minutes into Divorce His I had to turn this talky, drawn out part (one) off. I didn't notice characterization or even plot in that time. Watch 'Who's Afraid Of Virginia Woolf?' instead.

Bought this for $1 at Target. Apart from the cool look at the dated clothing and the somewhat sophisticated settings, the film is a tedious recollection of an ill-advised marriage breaking down. He's a repressed jerk and she's a full-blown neurotic. And that's followed by a couple hours of bickering. Go rent "Who's Afraid of Virginia Wolf" instead.
